Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Johnstown District Curriculum
Both English/Language Arts and Math follow a spiral curriculum, and students are expected to become adept in basic skills before they enter Grades 4, 5, and 6. Starting during the intermediate years, students are challenged with more analytic work to develop critical thinking skills. Students who excel in Language Arts and Math have the opportunity for advanced study as early as middle school, and will enter a college prep track early. Other students will have later opportunities as they progress through school, and all students will become part of an intensive educational experience.
A unique feature of the high school curriculum is that students are followed for a year after high school graduation to track outcomes, whether they attend college, university, a vocational program, or enter the military. Students are expected to achieve objectives as they move towards graduation, and some will meet college prep standards at an earlier age than others.

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: Looking Toward the Future
Middle and high school are not too early for your student to explore opportunities for careers and education. Besides reading biographies about leaders in their chosen field, they might want to spend time volunteering in an animal shelter if they are interested in veterinary medicine, writing articles for the local newspaper, or even attending special summer camps in science or technology.
